unspecifiedSo this week I have good news and bad news… The good news is that I survived my mom visiting for 10 days. The bad news is that “survived” doesn’t mean I didn’t gain weight. Yes, the scale said 2lbs more than it did a week ago. But after losing 30lbs in 5 months, I can’t expect to lose a pound a week forever, so losing nothing or gaining a few ounces is expected. Gaining 2lbs on the other end might seem like a setback, but I don’t see it that way.

Why don’t I think gaining 2lbs isn’t a setback? Because a year ago I would have gained 6lbs in the same situation. I can’t recall how much I gained last year when my mom visited for my birthday, but I guarantee you it was far more than two pounds. Think about it. You are spending 10 days side-by-side with someone you love, who loves food, and you are both celebrating; and all of this mixed with 2 birthdays… It would be a miracle not to gain weight. You have to “live a little!”

The beauty of the Smart for Life program is that it gave me the tools to be able to indulge and enjoy my son’s birthday and mine while keeping my weight gain to a minimum. By teaching me “how to eat”, Smart for life provided me with a recipe for success that not only helped me put on 3 times less weight that I might have without it, but also the tools to lose the weight once I go back to my regular routine.

Imagine a life in which you can indulge, gain weight, and bounce back right away. A life in which you are not a prisoner of the refrigerator. A life in which you make smarter decisions regarding your eating habits. I know it sounds super cheesy, but that’s a smart life, and that’s what Smart for Life has done for me.

Check them out on Social Media:


    1. These cookies were invented by Dr. Sass- I’m sure he will never let the recipe go as it’s a nationwide company.

  1. I will have to check this out. This sounds like a way of eating I need to explore for me. Thank you so much for sharing

  2. Wow, 30 lbs in 5 months. I need to learn more about this Smart for Life program. I really need to lose about 40 lbs but I’m a terrible dieter and feel too down to exercise. It’s a vicious cycle. I need someone to push me! Congrats to you though!

  3. I really need to get involved because my heart don’t feel the same as it used to. I am really out of shape.

  4. I just gained weight looking at those cookies 🙂 No gaining isnt always a bad thing and things fluctuate. You did just fine.

  5. These cookies look amazing! I’m glad you were able to spend time with your mom and not regret your choices later. Weight fluctuates! No biggie.
